Keith R.A. DeCandido is celebrating the 25th anniversary as a fiction writer, having published his first short story in 1994’s The Ultimate Spider-Man from Berkley Books. In the two-and-a-half decades since, he’s written more than 50 novels, more than 100 short stories, dozens of comics and graphic novels, and more nonfiction than he’s capable of counting. His recent and upcoming work includes Mermaid Precinct, the latest in his fantasy/police procedural series; A Furnace Sealed, the first in his new urban fantasy series about a nice Jewish boy from the Bronx who hunts monsters; the Alien novel Isolation, based on the movie series and the hit videogame; four novellas in the Super City Cops series; serialized fiction in the world of the game Summoners War; and short stories in the anthologies Aliens: Bug Hunt, Thrilling Adventure Yarns, Brave New Girls: Adventures of Gals & Gizmos, Unearthed, They Keep Killing Glenn, both volumes of Baker Street Irregulars, The X-Files: Trust No One, Joe Ledger: Unstoppable, Nights of the Living Dead, and Release the Virgins! In 2009, he was given a Lifetime Achievement Award by the International Association of Media Tie-in Writers, which means he never needs to achieve anything ever again. His nonfiction on pop culture has appeared in multiple sources, including regularly on Tor.com and Keith’s own Patreon (patreon.com/krad), as well as anthologies like the Outside In series, Children of Time: The Companions of Doctor Who, ZLONK! ZOK! ZOWIE: The Subterranean Blue Grotto Guide to Batman ’66—Season One, and more. He’s also a professional musician (currently with the parody band Boogie Knights), an editor of 30 years’ standing (working for clients both corporate and private), a third-degree black belt in karate (which he teaches to both children and adults), and probably some other stuff that he can’t remember due to the lack of sleep.
